Great Green



The off the shoulder dress has become a predominant dress silhouette in the past few years. Contrary to what some fashion advocates may say, this trend continues to grow in popularity.

I’m so in love with this trend. I am 100% for this trend sticking around forever! Anyone else LOVE this trend? And for sure I love the color. My all-time favorite color. This dress is also super cute paired with white and a colorful bag. Show some skin because it’s spring!




The must-have​ ‘Fanny Pack’


I must confess, at the beginning, I had my doubts about this trend. But meanwhile I have to say, it has become one of my favorite trends for this season.

Fanny Packs are back. I still remember how Fanny Packs were worn at festivals or on the streets. When the trend first came up, I was just about 7 years old. As fast as the trend has come, it has disappeared from the scene and was considered as a fashion no-go for a while. However, with most trends repeating after a few years, the fanny pack trend has again secured a place in the front row of the fashion world and it is a must-have.

At the beginning of this trend, I had my doubts because I did not know how it prevails and whether I like it at all or not. In the meantime, I have to say that the trend not only looks good but is also very practical. The bag offers a lot of room for maneuver. The most important things can be carried very close to the body and at the same time, I do not need my hands to hold the bags. I like to wear the look in the sporty leisure look but also with a dress or blazer. You can wear it on your waist or like I did over your shoulder.

Sparkly Sporty


In my opinion there should be more colors in The Netherlands. More colorful buildings and streets are a must. Like this pink wall in Rotterdam that is made by Sandra Kleine Straatman (fashion blogger) aka more style than fashion. It fels like I was in California. Not only the location was good but also the sun was shinning, so it gave me a California dream.

I like to sparkle my clothes a little bit during the winter and especially the month December. This sweater from Monki is just a must have, cause it is not too shiny. Most people don’t like to buy a sparkly item. They think that you can only wear it during the holidays, but that is not true in my opinion. Try new things and wear sparkle with sporty like I did for this blogpost. These trousers from Zara are everything for me, cause they are so comfy. I didn’t want to make this outfit too sporty, so I wear this outfit with my all time favorite boots.




Easy outfit



We all have those days when you don’t want be overdressed or you try outfit after outfit,  but nothing fits good. Especially when I wake up for school I don’t want to take too much time to wear something special. These trouwers from Costes Fashion are just a must have for those days, because it is super comfortable and you can wear it with everything. I choose for a oversized sweater from Bershka, I already wore it as a dress (you can find the picture of it on my Instagram.) You can also wear it with a top, blazer and boots or heels to give it a chique touch.

Rocking the new season




Hola guys! It is always hard for me to find the perfect skirt, that fits well and looks good. This skirt from PrettyLittleThing just has everything that I need. The fabiric is polyester and the inside is made from suede to keeps me warm. I really like the studs and zips on it. The fake leather gives the outfit an edgy boost. I match it with a jumper from Brave Soul in the color old rose and black boots from Costes Fashion. I like to match cute pieces with edgy items. This was my first fall outfit post I hope you liked it. More coming soon!

Merky Paper


Paar weken geleden was ik op het Woo Hah festival en kwam het merk Merky Paper tegen. Het merk verkoopt cards en goodiebags met teksten van rappers en hip hop artiesten. Zo kocht mijn vriendin een card met “Pretty on fleek” en ik een goodiebag met “I miss the old Kanye” erop. Toen ik thuis kwam ben ik ze gelijk gaan volgen op Instagram en dacht waarom schrijf ik niet iets voor dit concept. Zodoende heb ik Samira gemaild de oprichter van het merk en heb haar een paar vragen gesteld over haar creatieve ideeën. Vervolgens heb ik samen met Rasheed foto’s genomen in Arnhem centraal. Ik heb bewust gekozen voor Arnhem centraal omdat het een grafisch en Urban uitstraling heeft wat goed past bij het concept.

Samira over Merky Paper

Merky Paper is vorig opgezet door mij, Samira Imaankaf. Een creatieveling uit Amsterdam. Altijd als iemand jarig was, maakte ik mijn eigen kaarten. Ik hou erg van pun grapjes. 

{Definitie van pun. Incase you don’t know}

*A play on words. Generally a pun takes a word that is quite understandable in context and replaces it with a homonym (same-sounding word) to create an entirely new meaning, or replaces a word with a similar-sounding one to the same effect.*

Alleen ik miste het heel erg in de winkels. Vandaar dat ik toen met het idee kwam om Merky Paper op te zetten. Kaarten met pun grapjes door rappers. Ik luister veel Amerikaanse en Nederlandse hiphop. Door te luisteren en door te denken, kom ik op ideeën voor nieuwe kaarten.

Kom een kijkje nemen naar onze webshop op Etsy of onze Insta page. And please. Don’t send texts, send cards ❤

Going green 

Starting this summer with one of my favorite dresses at the moment. The one I’m wearing in this post is just another level for me! Something about the combination of the color, feminine look and the cold shoulder aka open-shoulder “the trend of this summer.” Another reason why I love this dress is because it moves. Every step I take makes the dress comes to life when I walk. It’s just a comfortable feeling what is very important to me. 

For this look I chose to pair it with heels from River Island (old collection) and a bag from Mango with golden studs. And to give it a special touch I pair it with a scarf from Costes Fashion. I’ll show you how you can wear it to make every outfit super casual. And of course you can wear this dress with flats or ankle boots for a casual outfit. I don’t need to tell you how much I love that.
